NEWS

John Schaffaer over at WNYC has once again brought us an outstanding Latin Jazz podcast as this week on his show Soundcheck he features the fantastic Puerto Rican saxophonist Miguel Zenón. Schaeffer talks with Zenón about plena and his conception of the plena through jazz, providing an enlightening perspective upon last year’s Esta Plena. In addition, you can hear some ear grabbing live performances from Zenón and his Esta Plena sextet – something that you have to hear. You can download or stream the podcast HERE.
